Just when you think you're one step ahead of the game (hello, Spring 2013), designers push the seasonal envelope with another onslaught of covet-worthy collections to contend with. That's right, Pre-Fall 2013 is here. Sure, the pieces may not be available for a while, nor will they be all that applicable come warm-weather turnaround, but — and this is a big but — there is enough spot-on styling inspiration inside to cultivate a fresh spin on your wintry wares now. If you're on the lookout for a new layered approach, Tibi's sportier urban-chic look (think varsity jackets and NYC Transit Map-inspired prints) provides a good starting point. If you plan on sticking to feminine silhouettes, Carven's lace-covered, crisp-collared minidresses might be exactly what your styling M.O. needs. Or, if you're just craving a midseason pick-me-up, Yigal Azrouël's python-infused black biker jackets are kind of amazing. Click on for the best of Pre-Fall 2013, and keep in mind that next year's fashion can be today's outfit fodder.
